Sat outside under the canopy (eating out for the first time for a year) and under a heater, which made the outside seating experience very comfortable. Staff were welcoming and friendly as always. The food was excellent as always. Always our first choice of restaurant. Highly recommend.

Above average vegetarian Indian food, catering also to vegans.
Cold & noisy outside in the tent- will be better once allowed to dine indoors.
Overpriced non-alcoholic drinks and overpriced food, considering no meat. The portions are small for the price.

Outstanding variety of vegetarian and vegan options, great chilled atmosphere, aesthetic decor. Food is an explosion of flavours, great if you’re looking for something to break your routine. Definitely recommend dahi puri for starters- it’s the best thing I’ve tried in months. Went to celebrate birthday with my friend and we both got cooking books as a gift ❤️
